According to John Sterman, “As long as every person in the world wants more, there is no solution” to the issue of global warming and the sustainability of our planet. Check out his interview in the MIT Sloan Management Review: http://sloanreview.mit.edu/beyond-green/a-sober-optimists-guide-to-sustainability/
Topics covered include:
- how to get people to think for real on sustainability
- why the conventional wisdom about energy is just a myth, and
- how to live as if there’s just enough time left to save the world
Professor Sterman is one of the world’s leading experts on system dynamics and is very active in the sustainability initiatives going on at MIT, and MIT Sloan in particular. He has a brilliant mind and is a fantastic speaker. If you ever have the opportunity to see one of his lectures, DO IT!
